    I'm Jewish and I love Skillet. Skillet are a rare "Christian Rock" band that doesn't shove Jesus in your face. Almost every song can be interpreted differently for each person, which to me, is a huge reason why I love em

    I used to really like Skillet, saw them live a number of times... but the beginning of this song really only reminds me of Drowning Pool's "Let the Bodies Hit the Floor"...

    Well, no one's regreted to whisper in the track anyway. Besides, we don't know if it's the track intro or not.

    There is a lot of Skillet hate going on right now... Even with it being UG I wasn't really expecting that. Is it because they're Christian? They're radio friendly rock, so what makes them any worse than any of the others?

    It's because they're a band that sounds similar to many other non-Christian radio friendly bands but doesn't have as creative lyrics.

    Hate on me all you want...but the only thing I am sick of is this band. Overrated as hell. They bring absolutely nothing new to the table.

    I actually agree that they're overrated, and I kind of like them (which is uncharacteristic of me, because I tend to dislike bands that present the kind of boring songwriting structures/riffs that Skillet does).

    does anyone else remember when they were just a less than mediocre christian band? or is that just me?

    Oh, that's exactly what they are. Hopefully they can Rise from the atrocity of the last 3 albums.

    Um...they pretty much are that... But, in the same way, there's many mediocre secular bands too. I don't really care about a band's religion (or lack thereof), but I do think it's silly that people put Christian bands in a different category for some reason.

    Well I don't like them, hate me or don't. Sorry you can't except my opinion and think I am stupid for not liking them.

    I don't hate you for it. I always respect people that say they don't like a band instead of just hating on them and saying they suck just because they aren't their style and such.

    "Skrillet article eh? I don't like them or really care about what they have to say...Better go on that article and tell people about my feelings!"

    I remember listening to these guys before the broke through in the mainstream. Savior and Open Wounds are 2 of my favs.

    They aren't just a christian pop metal band. They are a shitty christian band and a shitty pop metal band, put those two together... MEGASHIT band.
    im not mental
    i don't mind the fact that they're a christian band. i mind the fact that (judging from that trailer) they can't write a good song.
